Book “Digital Cool: Life in the Age of New Media” is written by Pramod K. Nayar.
You email your report, check the position of your stocks, play your favourite Rahman, and upload new patches for your favourite simulation game-all using the same three-inch-by-five device that fits into your palm. You chat, share, play and blog, even check for directions to the new Italian restaurant in town online. Everyday life is now digital.
Digital Cool examines life in the age of New Media. From Facebook to Internet dating, tablets to Twitter, cyber avatars to Wikis-it tells the story of how human lives today are heavily mediated by 'cool' technologies, and how the technologies themselves are mediated by our ways of living, playing, working.
